Neither of the images is free, but I created one you could use. While it will not end up in an article, you could keep it in your user page or in the article talk page. —This user has left wikipedia 04:25 2006-01-27
If you would, please add the following tags to the other images you created: {{db|sole creator}} (just edit them and paste that chunk of text in) that way they can be deleted quickly.

Image copyright problem with Image:Stinger.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Stinger.JPG. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Carnildo or ask for help at Wikipedia talk:Image copyright tags. Thank you.

Image copyright problem with Image:MOLLE.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:MOLLE.JPG. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Talk page usage[edit]

Vandalism of user page[edit]

I consider your removal of material off my user page as vandalism. I think you need to learn the difference between hypocrisy and irony. Gillyweed 00:01, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, sure, I bet everyone's in stitches because you said both you have a lot of page edits, and page edits don't matter. Real funny. Kevin 02:52, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Re[edit]

I'm not really sure, make sure you to hit preview button though when you type a long post on a heavily trafficked page. That way you won't have to re-type what you've already entered. Try it a couple more times and make sure that it gives you the same message and get back to me. Quadzilla99 21:40, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

NOTICE[edit]

When using the sandbox, please remember to LEAVE THE TEMPLATE alone. Also, please DO NOT DELETE your warnings. Thank you for your cooperation. INFORMATION CENTER© (TC) 00:48, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Re: Userbox space[edit]

I think I fixed it. Thanks for the heads up — I probably wouldn't have noticed it for a lot longer. grapħıte_elbowβ 02:16, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

And final[edit]

I'll concede to you on this. In retrospect saying "and final" violates WP:CRYSTAL but not saying it isn't making a call either way. Good points, all. -- MisterHand 17:28, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Do not want[edit]

Unfortunately, no those will not work. Websites with information that is submitted by everyday joes are not allowed as sources for Wikipedia. The Filmaker 01:49, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Spelling on your user page[edit]

Judging by your user boxes, you care about spelling and grammar. Since I also care about spelling and grammar and would prefer people to correct me when I get something wrong, I would like to let you know you incorrectly used further in Soldat. Since you were referring to the distance jumped the correct word would be farther. I fixed that, and on your user page noticed two spelling errors but didn't correct them because I'm uncertain if it's acceptable to edit someone else's user page. The misspelled words are asterisk and entries. --Noerrorsfound 07:58, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks I guess. But if you'll notice my userboxes, all the language ones are about grammar. I pride myself on knowing which form to use when multiple forms are available, like you're your, their there, etc., and I've never been very good at spelling (and I don't really care about other forms of grammar, such as prepositions at the end of sentenses).
English s a crazy language, with silent letters, multiple pronunciations of letters, and unneccessary multiple forms. But it's the only language I know, and in what I've learned about French, some other languages are worse in ways. It makes me sincerely wish there was one, sensible langage that the whole world used. Kevin 11:50, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
P.S. There may be spelling errors in my response, but I don't really care.
I corrected them anyway, though. Kevin 00:48, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). [edit]

Hi. I'm just wondering, why did you add this to the tfd's? I'm not sure if it was a test, if you were editting another page, if you thought it needed refs, etc, but this invalid refernece parameter casued the entire expand section to go under the seven wonders thing. I have fixed it since. Thanks. ~AH1(TCU) 15:51, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

fictional thingies[edit]

Erm... I quoted that because the nominator cited basing the article on primary sources as a bad thing. I was just trying to explain when it's appropriate to base an article on primary sources.--Marhawkman 04:23, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Which is why I said "at worst". It's probably not a slippery slope. But anyway, that notwithstanding, I agree it should be kept. Kevin 04:38, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

Replaceable fair use Image:Oozinator.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Oozinator.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Melesse (talk) 10:40, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Civility[edit]

Please keep politeness in mind when reverting other editors. No standard can be used to justify reverting an edit with "STFU". Circeus (talk) 17:42, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Leonidas02.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Leonidas02.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — neuro(talk) 01:00, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Re: Image[edit]

I deleted no such thing, and have reverted. No content was removed, the deletion notice was merely added. Here is the proof. — neuro(talk) 01:51, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

It means that you need to add a fair-use rationale, however, I can't see how a non-free image is appropriate in this case. — neuro(talk) 06:29, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
You must also state why it would be impossible for a person to create a free image (ie. to go out and take a photograph that would be free). — neuro(talk) 16:05, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Please, calm down. That is not a reason. — neuro(talk) 20:29, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

It is a good day to die[edit]

"Information loss" is inherently not a good reason to revert changes to a WP:DISAMBIGUATION page. A disambiguation page should not have any information that isn't contained in the articles that it links to, because it only exists to help users navigate to those articles. If the linked articles don't actually contain any information about the phrase, it should not be linked from the disambiguation page. Propaniac (talk) 02:21, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

It looks like the vast majority of those links you claim are useful are for the phrase "A good day to die" and not "It is a good day to die"; to be honest that's probably why I removed a lot of them, but I don't have time this evening to go through all of them. If they were on a disambig page called A Good Day to Die and linked to articles that discussed some meaning of that phrase, that'd be fine. Propaniac (talk) 02:32, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Inspector Gadget.JPG)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Inspector Gadget.JPG. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:30, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is List of female stock characters.

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of female stock characters (2nd nomination).

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Leonidas02.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Leonidas02.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Angus McLellan (Talk) 14:21, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Sparknotes[edit]

No offense, but I've reverted your addition of Sparknotes again per WP:RS: "Articles should be based on reliable, third-party, published sources with a reputation for fact-checking and accuracy." According to this criteria, Sparnotes is not a reliable source and therefore should not be utilized, no matter what is being sourced. There are many scholarly works that discuss The Red Badge of Courage and its characters, available both in print and via online (GoogleBooks, Netlibrary, etc.), so Sparknotes isn't exactly the only choice out there. :) Hope this helps, María (habla conmigo) 21:36, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Revision to Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire and Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri articles[edit]

I noticed that you have revised either Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri or Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire.

I intend to revise those articles following the Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Article guidelines. There are more details on the discussion pages of those articles. I'd be interested in any comments you have. It would be best if your comments were on the discussion pages of the two articles.

Thank you.

Vyeh (talk) 12:56, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Answer to your question of vyeh's talk page[edit]

Kevin, thank you for your response on my talk page. As a matter of fact, I deleted the link to MobyGames because it looked like a pedestrian review. The guidelines I mentioned above say

  • If the page contains substantial information that is relevant but not necessarily encyclopedic in nature, a video game's page at MobyGames, Allgame or the Internet Movie Database may be added on a case by case basis.

I didn't feel the page had "substantial information."

I am sorry if I disturbed you with my message. I do plan to do an extensive overhaul of the two articles and I thought there would be less problem if I let people who were interested in the articles know about it. I checked and the articles are on less than 30 watchlists. I wish there was a way of identifying who was watchlisting the articles. Then it would be easier to figure out who was interested. I did consult with Narthring and Reyk about letting people know and Reyk said "It is good that you're asking for advice before making large-scale edits though- politeness and consideration for other editors is always a good thing."

I'm new and don't know the proper protocols. I've read the materials that Narthring provided me. I would appreciate any guidance you have. You can reply on this talk page. I have watchlisted it.

Thank you.

Nomination of List of The Simpsons writers for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of The Simpsons writers is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of The Simpsons writers until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

Speedy deletion nomination of Something else[edit]

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.
